detail retrieving capabilities. Metal film resistors and
polypropylene capacitors are used in key areas to ensure
a highly accurate frequency response. High quality 5532
op-amps are used instead of the much lower grade and
type normally found at this price level. Apart from the
single output capacitor, no other capacitors are used in
the signal path. The output impedance is very low at 300
ohms, making the NAD C 521BEE less sensitive to cables
or the ancillary equipment it is partnered with.
Not surprisingly, the C 521BEE is an ideal companion
to NAD's award winning amplifier, the C 320BEE.

When combined with any one of a number of excellent
moderately priced loudspeakers available today, this
combination can offer a level of performance and musical
satisfaction far beyond what was possible at any price,
only a few short years ago.
